Hey guys & gals. I have a Deep Blue with a Miyota 8215 movement that needs servicing and the main spring replaced. What have you found to be the cost to have this done. Also, any suggestions who to use for this type of work. I don't have a local shop that would perform this work. Thanks.

UPDATE:
I contacted Rick Hoover of Current Time Watch Works and he performed the work. He was a pleasure to deal with and I would totally recommend him for any future work that may be needed.

I just had a 9015 serviced by Rick Hoover of Current Time Watch Works. The power reserve wasn't working up to par. He got it on Friday and I got it back on Wednesday. It's the 4th or 5th time I use him. Always great communication and service.

I would think replacing the entire movement would be less expensive then having a new mainspring put in.

That is what I thought too. I had contacted Deep Blue they had me contact the authorized service center of Deep Blue (Saltzman Watches) and they suggested the full service and mainspring replacement which doesn't sound right to me. :confused: I will be getting the watch back from them and go elsewhere.

You can always contact Uncle Rod (Aka Crotchhasteeth) who is a WF member. He's done some work for me in the past, as well as others on the forum.

Send me the old movement. I have had Miyota 8200 series movements runs for over 15 years with out service. I will give it a good home.
I recycle by using something till it cant be fixed anymore. Thats how you save the world. I service all my old watches when they need it.

IMHO it's not IF it needs servicing but WHEN it needs servicing.
I have a Deep Blue with a Miyota 9015 engine. When winding, the
counterweight is really noisy.
Bothers me not. What bothers me is when it stops sounding like a
rock crusher operating.
